  18. 18. Product Testing Vinu Abraham   Cyclic Pressure Test (9000 cycles)   Missile Impact Test (large or small)   Three identical units   All glass types must be tested   All installation methods must be tested   All hardware types must be tested Note: non-glazed products (storm panels & shutters) only have to go through 1342 cycles, 5/8" plywood is accepted and does not have to go through missile or cyclical testing 18
  19. 19. 4.1 Product Requirements   Test specimens must be the same as installed products   System components must be identified   Installation methods must be completely described, provided and executed 19
  20. 20. Product Characteristics Windows and doors designed for Wind-borne debris regions will have the following characteristics:   High design loads   Impact resistant glass   Missile impact approval   Cyclical pressure test   Specific design pressures 20
  21. 21. Glazing Design Requirements 1.  Large missile or Small missile 2.  Cyclical Loading 3.  Air, Water & Structural 21

  24. 24. 4.2 Large Missile Test 24 Missile Video
  25. 25. Cyclic Pressure Testing Vinu Abraham   Simulate both positive and negative pressures   Determines the maximum design pressure   Consists of 9,000 total pressure cycles   Conducted on test assembly after it impact testing 25
  26. 26. Cyclical Pressure Testing 26 Cyclical Video
  27. 27. 4.2 Glazing Performance Positive/negative pressures applied to glazing systems
  28. 28. Pass/Fail Criteria Vinu Abraham Impact Test Cyclic test   No penetration of the   Same as impact test missile   System as whole   No tears in the must remain interlayer together   No hardware failure   No anchorage failure 28
  29. 29. Air, Water & Structural Vinu Abraham This is completely independent from impact & cyclical test! Three Independent Test:   Air infiltration testing   Water penetration testing   Wind load structural testing 29
  30. 30. Product Approvals   Information Available On-Line   Consult with Manufacturers   Review approval documentation 30
  31. 31. Product Approval Documents What to look for:   Design Pressure   Size of Tested Assembly   Glazing   Anchors   Mullions 31
  32. 32. NOA - Items to Consider Vinu Abraham 1.  Request copy of NOA prior to specifying on project 2.  Verify NOA is valid at time of permit 3.  Verify NOA is suitable for project application – large missile vs. small missile 4.  Verify sizes and design pressures specified on NOA encompass the needs of the project application 5.  Verify sizes and design pressures 6.  Testing typically takes 3 to 6 months 7.  NOA’s are typically valid for 5 years (Dade Co.) 8.  Some jurisdictions will accept test results in lieu of NOA 32
  33. 33. Design Criteria for Calculations 1. Wind Speed Zone 2. Exposure Classification 3. Building Importance 4. Mean Roof Height 5. Unit Size 6. Wall Location (Building Zone) 33
  34. 34. EXAMPLE: Design Calculation for Impact Window 1.  Unit installed in Building Zone 5 of the structure 2.  Mean roof height of 30’ 3.  Window product is 3’ x 4’ = 12 square feet 4.  Home located in wind zone of 140 mph –  Large missile requirement –  Positive & negative design pressures of +33.7/–36.7 based on Table R301.2(2) calculated for Exposure B (R301.2: climate & geographic design criteria) 5.  Home located in exposure “C” requires adjustment coefficient of 1.40 in accordance with Table R301.2(2) –  +33.7 x 1.40 = +47.18 (positive design pressure) –  -36.7 x 1.40 = -51.38 (negative design pressure) Design Pressure (DP) required is +47.2/-51.4 34
